Join us for our first Science in the City event of 2020 on Thursday, October 29 at 1 p.m.
Science museums attract learners of all ages with a dazzling array of artifacts, engaging activities, and awe-inspiring specimens, but have you ever thought about how those amazing objects made it on exhibit in the first place? There’s a lot more to it than just digging up a few old bones and gluing them together for display! What is the mission, purpose, and story behind the creating of museum exhibits and displays, and why do some specimens make the cut for public view, while many others never make it on display? Join Perot Museum of Nature and Science curators Kim Vagner and Dr. Ron Tykoski as they walk you through examples of how delicate mineral specimens and fragile fossils are found, recovered, pieced back together, and installed in the Perot Museum’s exhibit halls. Then join in for a LIVE Q&A session to learn more about what they do, the specimens on exhibit, and what it’s like to work around and handle incredible pieces of our natural history every day!
All guests will receive event details at least 24 hours in advance.
